Do you like the name you were given? Is there a name that you think would suit you better?
my name is almost always mispronounced. even my last name–i always feel sorry for the cashiers and staff who are forced to say your name, and i have to watch them contort their lips trying to pronounce it. it actually shouldn’t be hard to pronounce, but perhaps only people of a certain age would know how.
i can’t think of any name that would suit me better, however. i’ve gotten used to always having to correct people’s pronunciations, and then giving up when they can’t. it’s frustrating, but what would i change it to? actually, when i used to go out with my friends and guys’d hit on us, i’d pretend my name was “ann.” hee. nice and simple. 🙂
